Publisher's Summary

Spectacular fossil finds make today's headlines; new technology unlocks secrets of skeletons unearthed 100 years ago. Still, evolution is often poorly represented by the media and misunderstood by the public. A potent antidote to pseudoscience, Written in Stone is an engrossing history of evolutionary discovery for anyone who has marveled at the variety and richness of life.

Excellent book

A good mix of evolutionary theory, history and fossil detective work. Very enjoyable. Worth listening to more than once.

Good overview

This is a good overview of the impact of paleontology on the development of our understanding of evolution. Slightly disjointed though. Performance was OK, with a couple of odd pronunciations.
